Treatment of isolated fat cells with insulin produced increases of up to 4.8-fold in the incorporation of [3H]inositol into phosphatidylinositol. This effect of insulin was both time- and dose-dependent with half-maximal stimulation at 30 microunits/ml of insulin. Insulin increased the labeling of phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate but not phosphatidylinositol 4-monophosphate in cells which had been preincubated with [3H]inositol for 90 min. Incubation of the cells in a Ca2+-free buffer increased the basal level of phosphatidylinositol labeling and enhanced the effect of insulin. Glucagon and isoprenaline, both of which stimulate lipolysis, had no effect on phosphatidylinositol labeling but did potentiate insulin-stimulated incorporation of [3H]inositol into phosphatidylinositol. Phosphoinositide breakdown was measured by the accumulation of inositol phosphates. Insulin did not increase the level of the inositol phosphates at all concentrations of the hormone tested. By comparison, phenylephrine and vasopressin were able to stimulate phosphoinositide breakdown. Pretreatment of the cells with insulin enhanced the effect of phenylephrine on inositol phosphates' accumulation, suggesting that insulin may potentiate phenylephrine-mediated phosphoinositide turnover. From these data we conclude that insulin stimulates the de novo synthesis of phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-biphosphate, but has no effect on phosphoinositide breakdown.
